Would anyone be interested in a last minute readathon for this weekend starting tomorrow 1/23 - Sunday 1/25? A lot of us on the East Coast are expecting snow so it might be a good weekend to get some reading done.

Fun! I think my goals are to finish listening to The Neverending Story audiobook and finish reading Sweet Reckoning and The Evolution of Mara Dyer. I also want start and get some progress on The Revenge of Seven! These are all library reads! lol. All while packing and minimizing my house. During the snowstorm. :)

Sounds like a good plan! I need to post the reviews for the books I finished last year. I think there are two of them. Then I'm going to dig into the 3 books that I have started already but did not finish in 2014. I'm hoping for lots of snow so I don't feel guilty about not doing anything...hahaha

Karol I'm in!

Got the day off to a good start, finishing two books I had in progress. Pecos Bill: The Greatest Cowboy of All Time and Chop, Chop

I hope everyone has a great reading weekend!

Got off to a slow start last night. I intended to finish Sweet Reckoning but instead I watched some of my DVR list and played Ticket to Ride with my husband. Today will be a cozy reading day. The snow started to fall around 6am and we have a few inches so far. It's a pretty and enjoyable view from my chair in front of the fire. :)

I read some of the Island by Elin Hilderbrand before going to bed. I promptly fell asleep 20 pages in though...hahahà Im headed out to get some groceries and then I'm going to make a soup and curl up with a nice cup of coffee and a book! I'll check back a little later :)

Apparently we'll be getting MUCH more snow on Tuesday. :( I finished Sweet Reckoning yesterday and am about halfway through The Evolution of Mara Dyer. About to continue packing so I'll get some The Neverending Story listening in.

I'm slowly reading between getting ready for the storm. My area is expected to get 12-24 inches of snow with 50-60 mph winds!

Annie | 394 comments Wow! I can't believe I missed the Roadathon!

Andrea, I'm guessing you are located in New England? We also were in a 12-24 inches of snow and heavy wind gusts area. Ended up with 28 inches, still shoveling! Hope you managed well.


message 13: by Annie (new)

Annie | 394 comments Elyse, I hope you managed well through the storm also!

Annie, I'm happy to host another Readathon any weekend that people want - maybe we could do President's Day weekend?

I'm in Plymouth, just a few miles from Cape Cod and we ended up with 31 inches! We never lost power though so it was all good :)

We only ended up with about 10 inches here in southern NH. With another 3-6 tomorrow.

I'm hearing 3-5 for us tomorrow and then a bigger storm Monday into Tuesday with 12+


message 17: by Annie (new)

Annie | 394 comments Elyse, I'm also in southern NH - about a half hour from the coast.

It will be interesting to see what the next few days bring.

Another Readathon over President's Day weekend sounds great!
